Pause Ponder and Pun #59

I don't know about you but I think this could be a wheelie hard one.

Or maybe I just mispoke myself.

Oh well, over to you guys.

Back Saturday with our results.

After he bought the bike a nice dinner, Jim figured this was the logical next step in the relationship.

"You got your bike seat on my balls."

Two great tastes that taste great together.

Woops! This is what I read: "...this could be a wheelie hard on."


So that's my entry.

Fred Knievel's daredevil career was never quite as successful as his big brother, Evel's.
Damn you, Nicky. I was gonna go for the Evel Knievel joke.

You take your nut sack out.
You put your nut sack on,
And you wheel it all about!
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!"

Goober was suddenly grateful that he hadn't showered the K-Y off that morning or he would have never gotten that bike seat out of his asshole!
Not a pun, but is that Pete Postlethewaite pushing on a pedal? - G

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
